Can an Old Dog Learn New Tricks?

Hello everyone!

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” – C. S. Lewis

Write a story about a character who perceives himself/herself or who is perceived by society as being too old to set a new goal or dream a new dream, but does it anyway.

Here are some questions to get the creative juices flowing:

  1. What is his/her goal?
  2. Why is this person “too old” (physical age, the age at which the activity/goal/career is usually started or ended, marital status, etc.)?
  3. What challenges/obstacles does he/she face?

Happy writing!
